Finally, an all-inclusive spiritual (not religious) organization with an amazing community of like minded people.  Thank you, Dave for founding this much needed organization.   The workshops and the speakers at Pranja Institute have all been first class.    I’m a seeker and I love that I can go the website, an event, a retreat or listen to a live guest speaker podcast.  I always hear just what I need to hear at the time.  It’s a great place to connect with others and expand your consciousness.

Dave and the teachers at Prajna even helped me to develop a simple meditation practice that I can do anywhere. If you’re even the slightest bit curiouabout mindfulness or spiritual growth, then Prajna Institute is the place for you.

“I have had the privilege of taking several workshops with David Schofield.  I especially enjoyed the one on “Forgiveness” and found it to be life altering in helping me to mend a difficult family relationship.  

David is a very kind and patient teacher who is very informative concerning the subject matter of the work shop.  It is obvious his knowledge is through education and personal experience, while at the same time implementing his teachings in his personal and professional life.  He encourages the workshop attendees to participate if and when they are comfortable and is grateful when someone is able to share their thoughts and response concerning the focus of the workshop.

I highly recommend David’s workshops to anyone who is interested in gaining and expanding their self-knowledge.   I look forward to his next workshop!”

The forgiveness workshop was enlightening. Dave is a great facilitator and makes everything feel fresh. Each week was new and filled with readings, teachings and exercises around forgiveness. Its always a safe environment for learning, sharing and being vulnerable. I have done a lot of workshops with Dave and I can honestly say they are very helpful in my overall wellness.
